Report - Family Relations Act Reform Project
Crystal Reeves, March 2008
The Family Relations Act Reform Project was conducted in order to support inclusive community participation in the review of the Family Relations Act (FRA), which is currently being carried out by the Ministry of the Attorney General for the province of British Columbia. The project was comprised of a range of core tasks designed to ensure that "citizen experts", including those with lived experience of family law in British Columbia, family law advocates and support workers and family court youth justice committees, were given the opportunity to meaningfully and appropriately engage in the FRA review process. The FRA reform project report sets out the experiences, opnions and recommendations of citizen experts who participated in the project.
